Do you know how to get the most out of audio on your e-learning courses?

At home, we can watch a TV program, pause it, and then continue watching it in a different room or on our mobile devices on another day. Eventually, we were able to do away with that hardware player when QuickTime and other digital video formats became available. Smart mobile devices give us built-in cameras and microphones, high quality audio and video, new interaction types such as swiping, pinch-and-zoom, and using the built-in accelerometers.
